What Happened In The Predator Prequel Movie?
The Predator prequel follows Naru (Midthunder) who seems like an outcast from her tribe due to her refusal to participate in the assigned roles of her culture. Her skills and wits propelled her to become the heroine of the story as she goes toe-to-toe with a Predator alien.
In one of her previous interviews with EW, Midthunder said, “I’m sure that nobody would make something again if it wasn’t amazing,” when asked about the rumored sequel. She also noted that whatever the decision of the studio will be the right choice.
Prey is now streaming via Hulu.
